And as she tries to uncover the truth about what happened, Chloe begins to realize that Lindsay's brother, Noah, is the one person alive for whom she'd go to the ends of the earth....

Editorial Reviews

Author of How to Save a Life
“A compulsively readable tale of complicated friendships, life-changing loss, and the search for authentic experience in a world full of artifice. It’s a story about coming to terms with the fragility of life, as well as its mettle, and with the failures of those we love along with our own…in other words, growing up.”
